* While ''Series/TheDailyShow'' is often held to have fallen into a DorkAge after Creator/JonStewart left, two of that show's former correspondents went on to create ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'' and ''Full Frontal with Samantha Bee'', both of which are often cited as its true successors and more faithful to its spirit.

* ''Series/TwinPeaks'' was a SpiritualSuccessor to an unrealised Mark Frost/David Lynch plan to dramatise the life of Marilyn Monroe. Both stories featured the mysterious death of a beautiful blonde with a murky secret life, all recounted in a secret diary. Lynch's film ''BlueVelvet'' could also be considered the spiritual ancestor of ''TwinPeaks''.

** MST3K itself is a spiritual successor to all the various local "creature feature" shows such as Creator/{{Ghoulardi}}'s. On some of these shows, the host would mock the movie while it was running.

** The first couple seasons (at least) of ''Series/Supernatural'' included at least three ''Series/TheXFiles'' alumni, including Kim Manners, John Shiban, and David Nutter; John Shiban was hired specifically because of his writing work on ''Series/TheXFiles.'' As a result, season one, especially, has an "X-Files" vibe.
